View From The Porch: The wood police.

I swear to Mises, if Ayn Rand had put a scene in Atlas Shrugged where the federal environmental cops were raiding musical instrument manufacturers because they weren’t complying with federal wood-labeling laws, critics would have howled with derision at the fanciful and unrealistic scenarios she was making up to ham-handedly hammer her point home.

We are well past the point where so many things are illegal, that anyone can be arrested and imprisoned at any time for some random offense.

And to think: the original Constitution defined less than a dozen federal offenses, and now there are hundreds of thousands of federal crimes!
